OK. It's time for a chat. What happened? New lens? New camera? Photoshop course? What is UP with those totally "dope" pics you produce so regularly now? Holy moly, girl, I can't tell if I'm on Dana's site, Andrea's site, or your site anymore; all of you are so stinkin' good that I nearly pass out! wow. Just wow. 5 stars, my friend... you ROCK!

your photos capture so much personality and expression. your pictures are so sleet and clean. have you ever conducted a "self interview" where you've discussed your photography background/equipment? love to hear about it!

i'm a face person and i would only take pictures of faces if i could.

oh and photo thursday is just me committing to post about my experiences as a wedding photog and photography in general. and yes, sometimes people just need that one comment to keep going. :)

Wow, I LOVE that quote at the top! SO TRUE. I hope I don't turn into a cranky old lady one day. I think it would be much more fun to be one of those crazy old ladies. :) Y'know, the ones that do what they want and don't care what others think? I want to be joyful always.

That's what I like about your pics. I can always find JOY there.
